3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Mikkeller & Friends. Pours black with a rather small frothy dark mocha head that leaves some spotty sticky trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toasted cereal, sweetened dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, moist soil, coffee hard candy, dried blueberries and hints of burnt wood. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel is soft, viscous, round, slightly cloying, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, burnt caramel, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, moist soil, burnt wood, maple syrup and hints of alcohol. Bit too sweet and syrupy...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From memory, as I’ve managed to throw away my notes... Pours deep black with low tan head. Aroma of muscovado, coffee, vanilla, chocolate, bourbon, very sweet smell. Taste is also very sweet, yet somehow balanced and despite the high ABV, it’s not very boozy. Body is rich and creamy with soft carbonation.
